HSQLDB (HyperSQL, Hypersonic SQL) database & Spectral Core

HSQLDB is a Java-based database created by Thomas Müller in 1998. Its original name was Hypersonic SQL and later HyperSQL, or, more commonly HSQLDB. In 2000, Thomas was employed by a Silicon Valley company PointBase, who, although initially allowing him to work on HSQLDB, decided he must cease working on the database. At that point Fred Toussi took the code over and continued developing the database. At 2005, Thomas continued working on a database product, but instead of joining work on HSQLDB, decided a fresh start is needed and created H2 database.

We support HSQLDB directly in our products! You don't need separate drivers and can immediately connect to your database.

HSQLDB is a fast and reliable database. It’s a mature open-source product under continuous development since 2000. Over 1700 open-source projects and many commercial products rely on HSQLDB.

Version 2.0 of HSQLDB was released in 2010 with new transactional core and JDBC.

All our applications are .NET applications. We opted to support Java-based HSQLDB database by migrating it to .NET platform using IKVM.NET, which automatically migrates Java bytecode to .NET bytecode. Therefore, we have native support for HSQLDB and can read, write and query HSQLDB.

HSQLDB support in our products

All our products support HSQLDB database natively. No drivers are needed, you will be able to work with HSQLDB as soon as you run our applications.

Export your HSQLDB database

It may make sense to migrate your data away from HSQLDB. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.

We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current HSQLDB database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.

Import data into your HSQLDB database

Have a need to import data from various sources into your HSQLDB database? Luckily we support many popular database formats to make this easy for you. Instead of messing with exporting from source, then working your way to somehow import data into HSQLDB, use our tool to copy all desired tables directly - quickly and easily.

Replicate your HSQLDB database

If you have already created your target database (by yourself or using our Full Convert product), you can synchronize data in your target database with your original HSQLDB database. We never pollute your databases with additional tables or triggers for replications. We never even write to your source database.

Replication allows you to update your target database very often, as we always write just a minimum of changes needed to bring databases in sync. For example, if you added three records to a single table in your HSQLDB database, our replication product will write those three records to target database and nothing else. If you deleted some records, changed some others and inserted some, again – our product will pick that up and replay those changes in the target databases without touching existing data that should stay there. Our products are highly optimized for real-world workloads, so data that's inserted into different areas of table are combined and written using high-speed algorithms, as available in a specific target database.

You can run database replication often, as your target database is never empty while replication runs. You will simply see that your changes are applied on each run.

Document your HSQLDB database schema

Database diagrams only get you so far. You may want to keep HTML mini-website for your database documentation so all your developers can be in the loop and quickly locate needed information. You may need it for a client report, or to distribute your database schema as a CHM file to people who need it.

Our products even allow you to upload the documentation to your FTP server, so your website copy is always current.
